Chunky Chicken Tortilla Soup

Standard
Chunky Chicken Tortilla Soup

This is one of my all time favorite recipes! I don’t like the texture of your typical tortilla soup. The slimey tortilla strips gross me out. So I just don’t add them. I like to break up the chips and add them to the bowl a little at a time. That way they are crunchy!

First collect some ingredients.
